An exploration into the history of subjugation, ...and darkness was upon the face of the deep weaves African-American slave songs, critiques of the American penal system and ruminations of technological dependence together into a continuously shifting soundscape. Timbres meld together, pushing ambiance into driving rhythms into spectral cacophony and back again.

The album draws upon the interests and aesthetic leanings of the
Baker-Barganier Duo, a chamber ensemble made up of New Renaissance artist Elizabeth A. Baker and composer/multi-instrumentalist Erich Barganier. The ensemble grew to explore the recently coined genre of New Renaissance art, a discipline that melds poetry, dance, music, experimental theater and more together in each work.
